Possible Maori skull found under New Zealand car park
Published on April 2nd, 2013 | by Admin0
Work on the car park, which is part of a $67 million redevelopment of the hospital, was stopped after the skull was found about 11.30am [last week].
Police had been supportive of local custom being observed, and workers had taken part in a karakia for the area, which was known to have been a traditional cultivation site for Ngati Awa.
